I think what's most important (Copyright / Intellectual Property Laws included) is this statement:

"I have also noticed that a number of views from the US and Canada have no referral information. It would appear that my site has been "crawled" several times since March 2012. Unfortunately I'm not happy with the situation as I was not asked if I wanted this to happen, even though there are contact details and a clear statement on my blog that I do not want my work shared in this way."

The Internet Archive is not a legal deposit, it is a private corporation. It does not have the legal permission to make permanent copies, store, republish, and then disseminated to millions of people, on a daily basis, the Works of others that are copyright protected.

Respect for the Rights of others really isn't that difficult.
